The Orange Child

Today I share a graphite portrait of another child met few days ago. Me and my wife couldn't figure out what her name was so we speak of her as the Orange Child for she usually wears an orange shirt. She is the youngest of the "pack" of children we played with, but also the one who hits stronger when we were playing with some other child because she wanted to be the only one to play with us. Me and my wife got some punch of hers too.

Letter to a Friend

Few days ago I dreamt of you, my Friend. Luckily this early morning I have been given a picture of you I didn't have and thought to draw of you.
That dream was beautiful indeed at first but then, when I realized it was only a dream, I felt broken in pieces because I still miss you so much I can't bear it.
Usually I can't remember my dreams but I believe this one won't ever fade away.
Best Christmas my Friend wherever you are, I hope you are doing fine.

The Fuchsia Child

This evening I share the portrait of a child we met recently. She was so serious but with a wonderful smile the more precious for it was so rare. I even saw the most funny face I have ever seen: while I was pretending to throw her high in the sky, her and some other tens of children, she wore a face with eyes wide open in fear and delight at the same time, like saying " so fearful but don't stop!"... And when I put her down on the ground she didn't want to be left and climbed on my neck asking more. It was funny for her... and for me too. Her name sound like Paris maybe, but with my wife we couldn't be sure so we spoke about her as the fuchsia child because she wears a fuchsia shirt.

A Shining Smile

She is a cute little child playing hide and seek with us while her mother was nearby fitting up her open shop among the clothes. Her mouth dirty of sand can't hide how bright her smile shines.

A Very Strong Emotion


Today I saw several whale sharks and swam with them. I made this ball pen  sketch to remember the strong feeling and happiness I still feel.

Prague

This is my watercolor painting copy of a picture I found in my google+ page. It shows Karl Bridge in Prague.
This painting made me remember of about fifteen (but it could had been fourteen or sixteen also) years ago maybe late july or early august. I paid a visit to the national museum and found myself jaw dropped stunned looking at the painting there exposed of an artist whose name I can't recall. I just remember they where wonderful, painted maybe in oil and plaster for they where somewhat like low relief paintings. I remember boats subjects mostly and the feeling of despair and anguish that shone through those muddy colors. Does anyone know the name of that artist? I'd like very much to admire those amazing paintings again.

Many big thanks to whomever can give me any clue about this artist.
